The Economist on Elias Khoury

Fantastic review from The Economist magazine of Elias Khoury’s sublime As Though She Were Sleeping:

ELIAS KHOURY’S As Though She Were Sleeping follows Meelya, a young Lebanese woman, as she dreams her way into marriage with Mansour. It drifts between her home of Beirut and Nazareth, as Meelya remembers her childhood and imagines her future. Newly married she wanders the streets of Nazareth ceaselessly, “becoming a line in a large book that she read and lived at the same time.”

Meelya’s dreams, both by night and by day, are filled with memories of her uncle who hung himself from a bell rope and of salty days swimming with her brother.
